The Nerdy Bookworm Tag

Hello. I realize it’s been a while since I’ve done a tag, and I have no other ideas for what to blog about anyways, so here’s another tag for you guys!

Thanks to my friends Ace and Ari for tagging me, and thanks to Caleb for creating it! πŸ‘ Go check ’em out.

Haikus!

One day, when I was a wee lass (like eleven or twelve), I picked up a Magic Tree House book (anyone remember those?) set in historical Japan and read it. It was then when I discovered the art form of short yet unique poetry known as the haiku. By the time I finished reading the book, my creative juices were already starting to churn. I picked up the nearest notebook and composed my very first haiku. . .

Blowing away the dust

Okay, this place accumulated way more dust than it should have. πŸ˜› So after a month of silence I think it’s time that I (attempt to) resurrect this blog. I guess I could do a tag, but I’ve done a lot of them recently so I kind of want to hold back for another post or two.

I hate it when I can’t think of anything to write about besides tags. Don’t get me wrong — you guys have given me (and shown me) some really cool ideas, but I don’t have the confidence to do them myself yet.

~~Interview~~ A.N. Parker

Greetings, one and all! Hope you’re having a fine weekend. I sure am!

(At least I better be. I’m writing this on Wednesday, so for all I know I could be having an absolutely horrible weekend. But anyway. . .)

I had the privilege to interview one of my closest internet friends. She’s a writer, public speaker, entrepreneur and fellow blogger. Her name is A.N. Parker of Tales of the Spiral! (Also known as Nola Applequill among Aethasians and Aurora Parker among pirates.)

It’s Sooooo Classic!

I like classic books. It’s among my favorite genres. I don’t think I would have ever gotten into them if it weren’t for literature class. πŸ˜› So shout-out to my literature teacher!! You’re the best, ma’am. πŸ™‚

Why am I bringing this up? Well, because classics are cool, of course! But also because. . . .

It’s a party!

Seven-Questions Book Tag

Today I’m excited to pass on another tag! Unlike the first two book-related tags I did, this one I didn’t snatch without permission. πŸ˜› Thanks, Emma, for nominating me!! Y’all go check out her blog (Seven Billion Smiles); she and her sister do some really awesome stuff there. πŸ˜‰

The rules are pretty straight forward. Thank the tagger, answer the questions, nominate some more peeps and give them new questions, the usual. πŸ™‚

Mid-Year Book Freak-Out Tag

Heyo, Hunters! Today I’m snatching up another reading-themed tag, this time from my friend Jane Maree. I didn’t know I liked book tags so much. X’D Live and learn.

According to the apparent originator of the tag, I’m supposed to “do the obligatory side-eye at the fact it is June and [you] don’t recall expressly giving permission for that to happen”. Well all right then.

~~Book Review~~ Harry Potter

*cringes under all the cold glares*

Yes, yes, yes, I am completely aware that I ought to be ashamed of myself for reading the Harry Potter books. And I honestly am a little bit; I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

In any case, they turned out to be pretty review-worthy, so here we are. (Please don’t kill me. . .)

Sorry this post is late, by the way! I was hoping I could get it done on time but. . . life happened. πŸ˜›

CHALLENGE: Do I Have That Book?

Since I started using Goodreads I’ve developed a peculiar fondness for books. I’m still not a bookworm or book-dragon so much as a book-cat (meaning, I love books but I’m not utterly obsessed with them. It’s like more passive), but I didn’t realize how much of a reader I was until recently.

So when I saw the Do I Have That Book challenge over at Jenna’s website, it immediately peaked my interest. So today I shall woefully break the Eighth Commandment and steal a tag from her.
